Third decade of Perfect Drive – MercedesTrophy returns with more powered swings!

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today announces the return of the highly-anticipated MercedesTrophy. With its long and successful history, this year marks a special significant milestone for Mercedes-Benz as the MercedesTrophy tournament will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in this immensely sport highlight. The tournament for the Malaysian category will tee-off with its first qualifying round at the Penang Golf Club in Penang on 13 March.


“Golf is a wonderful game and we love it for its passion for perfection. As Mercedes-Benz, we believe in being The Best. Therefore, Mercedes-Benz and golf, both share a similar spirit in striving for the perfect drive. This strong connection between the game and our brand has led to the active involvement for Mercedes-Benz in this sport since 1989. Today, the MercedesTrophy has evolved into an extremely successful tournament series for amateurs, staged over 60 countries, and we’re very proud to host it for the 30th year in Malaysia,” says Dr Claus Weidner, President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.


The Mercedes-Benz involvement in golf is deep rooted, dating back to 1991 when MercedesTrophy was first introduced and it has now established itself as an event which takes place in every continent. To date, over a million Mercedes-Benz customers and fans have teed off at the MercedesTrophy.


In testament to the overwhelming response received from our nationwide qualifying rounds held last year, this year’s competition will be played again in five qualifying rounds whereby the top five winners of each rounds will then meet for the National Final which will be held at Saujana Golf & Country Club, Subang on 23 June.
